We’re changing the way our blog and email looks. Effective TODAY. What do you think of the new look?

Tina’s Tidbits and Tales seems to be a great title for me. After all, I send all kinds of information to you, some of which has to do with business, some has to do with things happening in the world, in life, occasions on the calendar, whatever strikes my fancy. Sometimes I even tell you which holidays are coming up.  (Those would be Boss’s Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and yes, Christmas!)

It’s the first week of October and that means it’s time to think about fall. What are your favorite memories of fall?

Did you like to rake the leaves and then jump into the pile?

Maybe you remember going out to the pumpkin patch to choose the very best pumpkin!

Whatever your memories, this is a great time of year!

You can liven up someone’s autumn day by sending a terrific veggie gift basket or a great sunshinny cube of autumn flowers.
